Interviews

Meet your community! Each month we introduce you to a leader in the legal aid and equal justice community. We ask these advocates five questions and give them a word limit on their responses. We invite readers to nominate prospective interviewees—or to volunteer! E-mail your nominations to Amanda Moore.
